Hospiten presents new rescue equipment in La Gomera 

Hospiten Sur has delivered rescue material to the Association of Voluntary Firemen of Valle Gran Rey, in La Gomera, within the framework of its Corporate Social Responsibility policy.

The president of the Volunteer Firemen of Valle Gran Rey, Juan Elías Bello, and the head of the Park, Guillermo Barroso, were present at the event held at Hospiten Sur. On behalf of the group, the Manager of Hospiten Sur, Rafael Martínez and the medical director, Dr. Tomás Febles were also present.

Rafael Martínez said he was delighted to be able to collaborate with different groups and organisations with a clear vocation of service to society.

“This equipment will help them with the great work they have been doing for the past six years on the island, helping and contributing to the safety of residents and tourists who visit it. Therefore, we hope to continue collaborating on more occasions, ” he added.

Guillermo Barroso express-ed thanks for the donation and explained that the rescue equipment was going to provide them with a better quality of assistance and security, especially in those rescues in which the helicopter cannot access due to the orography of the island.

This collaborative action by Hospiten is part of the corporate social responsibility policy that the Group is continuously applying and with which it intends to collaborate with the Canarian society and improve the quality of life of the most sensitive groups.
